Operational Excellence measures how much stuff is made that can be sold vs. how much could have been made if everything was done right.

Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) is a key measure focused on equipment and process reliability improvement. It is a measure of how well we are capable of using our production equipment when we want them to operate. OEE is the product of three factors:

  • Efficiency
  • Availability
  • Quality

There are three ways to reduce the cost of any automated process:

  • Reduce unproductive machine time
  • Reduce cycle times
  • Reduce waste/scrap

In the OEE equation, we are seeking a higher OEE which means lower costs and higher profitability. To achieve success, there are several areas you need to consider. To learn what these are, we encourage you to attend this panel discussion.

We look forward to seeing you there, and perhaps bring someone else from your operation.
